First of all, Hi everyone and thank you for your help.

I saw this thread https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ssds-sata-and-negotiated-link-speeds.2047851/ and i noticed that my MacBook Pro has the same Nvidia MCP79 SATA controller and its currently using a HDD with a negotiated limk speed of 1.5Gbps.

I am planning on doing a clean install, and after that enable TRIM in Mac OS El Capitan i was wondering if i should be worried about issues like this with the WD Blue 500 GB SATA SSD.

Cheers

I installed a WD Blue SSD into a unibody 09' MacBook, and no issues there. It was not a pro and I don't believe I messed with trim support, but mine worked great until I sold it.

Did you had full link speed at 3 Gbps?

I got full link speed of 3 GB/s in both HDD bay and Optibay on my Late 2008 unibody MacBook with Kingston UV400 SSD. Raid 0 setup can give me up to 1GB/s speed to move stuff around the system. I believe negotiated link speed depends on a controller.
